changes in GRBL not saving

Postby Joethegasman » Sun Mar 25, 2018 6:03 pm

I am trying to get the GRBL settings to save on the laser side of Picsender. I have a file edited for it, I open the file, then send it. recheck the settings and they are there. I also get the message that chanes are temporary unless saved. If i hit save, it opens a dialog box to : local disk (C:) >ProgramData >PicGRBL This is where the text files of my GRBL settings are kept.
if i switch between laser and spindle and back again the changes are lost.
How do I get them to "Stick" ?

I somehow managed to save both variations of GRBL (spindle and laser) last weekend, but for the life of me I cannot remeber how I did it.

I'm sure it will be a forehead slap moment when you tell me :oops:

The Laser grbl settings need to be saved to the laser.txt file and the Spindle grbl settings to the spindle.txt file. When you change the modes, it will load and send those settings automaticly to grbl depending on the mode you select, but only if the "Use Auto Settings" is selected.

Duh, Picsender is looking at laser.txt, to preserve original settings ive been saving to laser2.txt.

Oh well, live and learn I guess.

Told ya there would be a face palm...
